Hi friends and welcome to IMP Collab! Recently we announced our newest upcoming memory keeping class, In My Pocket Collab Travel Edition. Today I wanted to share our exciting team of Guest Contributors! My favorite part of being in our community is recognizing talented designers and artists, while creating opportunities for growth. We truly do have so many wonderful people in our community and I love getting to know each and every one of you. IMP Collab is a major shift for us, in which we invite our Guest Contributors to create the class content for you and share with you their ways of creating! The benefit of this is that you get to see a variety of styles, tips, tricks, and ways and means to create albums that are special to you. You will also get to make new friends here! There really is something here for everyone, whether you are a traditional or digital scrapbooker, 12×12 or notebook crafter, using physical products or mixed media. So allow me to introduce our team to you today for IMP Collab Travel!
Co-Hostess Meg Gundlach
Meg will direct us to the correct gate throughout our journeys, accepting passports and delivering maps and souvenirs. Ok, in truth Meg is going to challenge us with her own inspirational pages and layouts throughout the class! She will be sharing her challenges (they always come with prizes, by the way!) and overall pumping you up!
Hi! I’m Meg but you may know me better online as TravelScrapSleepRepeat. Born and raised in Wisconsin, I’ve spent most of my adult life living in Wales with my boyfriend Ken. I started scrapbooking when I was 12, levelled up by working in a local scrapbook store at 16, and never stopped documenting. I’m primarily a chronological scrapper and I transitioned entirely to pocket scrapping in 2010. As a nomad at heart, 2020 has grounded me indefinitely and I’m using all my creative outlets to get through.

Hello! I am Amber and I live in southeastern PA with my partner, his 3 kids (part-time), and our 2 kitties, Cypher and Tiger Lily. I’ve been scrapbooking since I was about 13 years old, keeping memory books of different kinds because I grew up with parents who encouraged me and inspired my love of photography. My partner and I share a love of travel, and I’ve been lucky enough to visit 23 countries, some multiple times! I think travel scrapbooking is my favorite because I get to memorialize a once in a lifetime experience and work with photos and ephemera from unique places! I also love scrapbooking our everyday lives, and for both styles of projects, I find that pocket scrapbooking and the ability to print at home are what make that possible! I’m excited to share my project with you and hope that you enjoy and pick up a helpful tip along the way!

Hi everyone, I’m Jackie from the UK. I’m a SAHM, married with a son who is 23 years old. I love scrapbooking and documenting our adventures, my hubby is camera shy but thankfully my son isn’t 😂, so you will see a lot of my photographs with just me and my son or even just my son.
I’m currently on several DT teams – something that I’d never imagine I would ever get onto one, and I’ve lovely how it stretching my creativity and loving every minute.
I also run my own retreat and workshop business with two friends, where we have had Amy Tan, Paige Taylor Evans & Vicki Boutin fly over to teach for us – again something I never imagine would happen – I still pinch myself that it exactly happened.
